You will be haunted...by three spirits. Expect the first tomorrow, when the bell tolls one.
the reds really give that dress a very festive feel. It probably helps that i'm terrible with identifying flowers, so it pretty much conjures up notions of poinsettias and Christmas cheer for me. the whites are very billowy like that the super powdery snow that catches on wool and melts into spectacular puddles that require great lengths at the fireplace to dispel. in spite of the perceived frivolity, you wear it very conserved, as though the wearing of the dress were perhaps some show to overcome a forlorn grief? Maybe this Christmas tiny Tim's chair really does remain empty.
anyways. Nice pose. The photo composition doesn't really add much to the ensemble, and detracts i'm afraid. but kudos all the same.
